After the natal year in the Year of the Rat, the Rat enters the Year of the Ox and becomes complementary to Tai Sui (also known as the Grand Duke).

However, there are still ups and downs in a Rat’s luck. Luck will be more stable if a Rat had gotten married, had a kid or bought a home in the last year. For Rats who married last year, having kids this year may extend the good fortune.

Luck score: 3.5/5


In the Year of the Ox, while there are signs of auspiciousness, there is also hidden bad luck beneath the surface.

On the one hand, new business opportunities are likely to appear, and business people will have many new ideas. On the other hand, these may be prone to complications.

If a large amount of money is involved, it is not advisable to act rashly. Don’t take shortcuts and instead put in the effort needed to earn the wealth.

Luck score: 3/5


This year, the auspicious Intelligence Star (文昌星) is most beneficial to desk-bound jobs, such as administrative, educational or creative work. It will also benefit students and those looking to further their studies.

You may wish to apply for value-added courses or get professional accreditation.

The Year of the Ox is good if you’re looking to change jobs, but it is easy to feel pressured by not being able to adapt in a new environment, so learn to relax.

Luck score: 3.5/5


If you have separated from a partner in the Year of the Rat, the Year of the Ox will be the year to start again.

Singles are expected to meet new people and may even get married faster than expected.

Those who already have a partner may have issues that are currently buried beneath the surface, and it is advisable to improve communication to avoid smaller problems becoming situations that are difficult to resolve.

Luck score: 3/5


A Rat’s overall health this year is better than in the Year of the Rat, but you may be prone to gastrointestinal and digestive system problems. It is recommended to eat lightly and healthily.

This year, a Rat is also particularly prone to neurasthenia, with signs like headaches, fatigue, irritability and anxiety. It is recommended for a Rat to exercise more to reduce stress, and be exposed more to nature to relieve negative emotions.
